Hi Marcelo!

I apologize as I'm not sure that I'm following your question, but it seems that you may be asking about the size of your 'course' once published? Keep your player size in mind and how that affects the size. You can read here for more information.

If that is not what you are asking, please clarify and we can try to further assist.

Hi Marcelo,

The preview size will always be constricted to the Storyline UI - so it will still be the overall same screen size, but should scale smaller/larger depending on what you've set as the story size, and the player/browser settings. Additionally I'd recommend testing the content by loading up to the intended environment as described here and testing within the browsers that user are likely to be using.

Hello Ashley,

My doubt is there any way of viewing the course get bigger , because after publishing saw that the course does not take up the entire screen, Leslie told me that it was possible , however made ​​the modifications put the screen it stays the same size.

Is there some setting I can do and be applied to all my course?

Hi Marcelo,

What did you  use for the story size and the player/browser settings? Storyline does not have a true "full screen" option - so you may want to think further about the size at which users will be viewing your course and then investigate the story size and player/browser settings that will allow for it to take up the largest amount of screen real estate. Also, what browser are you viewing the published output in? Did you upload it to the intended publish environment? Could the course be in an iFrame in your LMS or web server that is forcing it to display at a particular size?

Hello Ashley,

In fact I had not tweaked the settings , just after publishing that I realized I was small viewing screen, there decided to ask here in the forum has been how to increase after the Leslie helped me , I left as follows ;

** Browser size ( Resize browser to optimal size)

** Already in the Player Size ( Scale Player to fill browser window ) .

After making these settings on a course that was ready , I clicked to View member had moved and continued in the same way .

After published it opens in Google Chrome.

Hi Marcelo, 

It may be easier to follow along if I could see your .story file and all the settings you had enabled in terms of story size, player/browser settings, etc. Based on this alone - I would choose:

  • Resize browser to fill screen: This automatically resizes the learner's browser to fill the whole screen.
  • Scale player to fill browser window: This will scale your course (up or down) to fill the learner's browser window.

Depending on what you've set up as your player controls that may add some padding to the course as Leslie mentioned and the story size you're also using can impact the crispness if you're scaling the content. 

As for testing, are you uploading to a server to test it or testing it locally? I'd recommend ensuring you're uploading to the final publish environment.
